ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — New York State Police say they issued more than 4,600 tickets during their Super Bowl STOP-DWI traffic enforcement initiative last weekend.
State Police began their campaign at 2 p.m. on February 6 and continued for 34 hours until midnight on Sunday, February 7.
92 people faced DWI charges and hundreds of others were ticketed for distracted driving or seatbelt violations.
More than 1/4 of the tickets were the result of speeders though, according to State Police. Troopers handed out more than 1,700 tickets for speeding.
Last year’s Super Bowl enforcement effort ran for 12 hours. A total of 1,305 tickets were issued and nine people faced charges for DWI.
